Don't Say Gay bill up in Senate Mon or Wed, in House on Wed

HB0821/SB1250, commonly known as the Don't Say Gay bill, is up in the Senate Education Committee on Monday and/or Wednesday and the House K-12 Education Subcommittee on Wednesday. This action campaign will allow you to contact both the Senate Education Committee and the House K-12 Subcommittee to let them know you oppose the bill. Here is video of the House K-12 Education Subcommittee from Wednesday of this week. You're not going to like what you see. Special thanks to Speak to Power's Steve Ross in Memphis for the video in two parts:

Rep. Campfield may be confused about what counts as curriculum. He mentioned examples that relate to professional associations, not the curriculum of Tennessee schools. Let's hope the House and Senate education committees will see the truth.
